@ snappysammy, re. "Don't be sad for Chinese People...rTHEY ARE VERY PROUD SMART PEOPLE.....as for the toilets...it's impossible to catch something bad from the toilet seat....."

Yes, that's the bright side. Do you know I tell my fellow Americans about the squat-down toilets, and everybody thinks it's gross. They just have narrow minds for other cultures, it's a shame!


@ElinaT, re. "A big part of your post was really funny. May be your judgement was clouded by the unpleasantries with the visa officials"

Don't get the wrong idea: my overall impression of Chinese people is great. It is fascinating to see how other parts of the world work, and China is VERY different from the US and Europe.


@cassday, re. "The "squat toilet" can prevent sitting on the toilet too long, it's good for health"

I agree! A good way to keep certain muscle groups flexible! It explains a lot why old Chinese people seem to be in better physical shape (or at least more flexible) than others.

I was here on a series of renewed tourist visas and it took them three years before they suggested I register at the local police station. The following year my wife got a phone call from the local police querying the fact that she had a foreigner registered at her address who's residence permit had expired the previous day. The application was actually being processed and the PSB had laughed at the prospect of anybody arresting me because of the administrative delay when I had applied before the old one had expired. No I didn't get arrested and my wife was informed that she should just show them my passport containing the new residence permit as an when we got it back from the PSB so that they could update their records.
(mostly harmless)

How can your health be improved when you rush to complete the job (adopting a potential dangerous stance0 hence not indulging in leisurely completion of the task? A seat, newspaper in hand and whistle away..

Damaged knee due to exertions of splayed legs and bended knees is definitely not health enhancing!
No, I live above Sunset Plaza, it's a little house I rent and it's a little rundown but has a beautiful view, what about you?

You can still see these squat down toilets in Paris in a big pub.......right near the Sorbonne
